    nice roundup spike, just a shame that none of the heatsinks are in my class.... if you get me ;)

    Im an Alpha PAL8045 man, so I need a lot of satisfying as far as a heatsink goes :D

    its a good read tho :)

    Nice work m8! :cool:

    So what would you say is the best HS&F?

    as far as noise goes, I would say mine rates pretty high...

    Alpha PAL8045 with a Mechatronics 53CFM fan @ 39dB(A)

    It cools very well, and the noise is not disturbing. Its a compromise between the noise and high CFM

    my temps are typically around 40C load and 33C idle with my TBird running at 1.52Ghz. Case temperatures are around the 21-22 mark

    Hmmm, V. nice round up spike, another excellent bit-tech review.

    So i think that settles it its the coolermaster heatpipe for me then...

    Any idea what CPUs it fits, does it fit the new Celey Taulin

    Nice to see an update on the market - would be nice to include some links and prices though and make that part of the comparison... good article overall though :)

    Only thing is you didnt check for overclock ability of the CPU...

    No offence but if you read a heatsink review from Gibbo @ OcUKm he does pretty much the same as yau have done.

    But where you closed the article and concluded, he would goe as far as the test each heatsink to see which would allow the highest overclock and do a table showing the highes speed each CPU would run stabaly.

    Maybe you just didnt have the time

    The thing with Gibbo is that if he busts a CPU overclocking it for a review, he just asks them for another one.. if we do it, spike is 'sans PC' until he can afford a replacement. :)

    One tip for you Cypher: you will *never* get a 1.2 Celeratin to 1.8GHz w/ air cooling. Possbily with something like phase-change or peltier cooling, though you would stlil need a "lucky" CPU to do that.

    That is very true..... spike doesnt work for a company like OCUK who will supply gibbo with a new CPU as soon as he blows one up, where as Spike would be without a pc until he could afford another one :)

    Easy, a Celeron Taulin 1.2 runs at a 100FSB (12 x 100) with a Vid pin mode you can up the FSB to 133 (12 x 133 = 1600)
    Im gonna attempt to run the poor processor at a 150FSB, i can wish. or maybe just get a cele 1.3 when its out

    and who says i aint gonna water cool it

    Edit :: anyway, my current CPU is nearly Overclocked 200% :D

    Sorry but unfortunitly like biggie said I am not a mad overclocker, I dont have access to overclockable chips and my main problem is that the chip I have wont overclock at all..... its a 1200 running at 1217, hardy what you call mad overclocking...
    If I had an AXIA or one of those 1.3 chips that o/c so well then I would have done some overclocking comparisons.

    Me hopes someone from amd is reading this ;)

    Oh and this is my hot thing

    Nice work m8 ;)

    Did u know the heatpipe actually contains v.little liquid, but does use a v.viscous liquid/solid in a mesh around the inside of the copper pipe :)

    Read some forums like the ones at www.overclockers.com Many people there do not get to 1.6, let alone 1.8, and they know what they are doing . I am not trying to flame or dismiss your ideas, it is just I have kept up with the subject of the 1.2 because I am going to get one myself, but I have no delusions of getting much above 1.6. It is not a matter of just setting the FSB, it is more of a limit of the core itself. Not many of them can run above 1.6...

    Trust me, you would need some exotic cooling to get to 1.8GHz.

    very nice article spike! I always love those roundups, especcially if you're building a new PC and you only want the best parts avaiblable at the moment. But, prices would indeed be even nicer! Than you can also check which has the best quality/price hs.

    Lets just say that the silver mountain is the cheapest (I think about £25).... then the rest apart from the swiftech are around £35 to £40 pounds and the swiftech is around £40 to £50

    The Coolermaster also did well at ReviewMakers, so he chopped off the heat-pipes and repeated the test. It did worse, showing they work, but no evidence of liquid was seen.

    And with ammonia, it should have been very obvious from the smell.
